Organized by the Lamoille County Planning Commission, the Association of Vermont Conservation Commissions, and the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources.

Vermont’s Wildlife in a Changing Climate Presentation on March 28 in Ripton

Vermonters of all ages are invited to attend a presentation about Vermont’s wildlife in a changing climate on Thursday, March 28 at 7:00 p.m.  The presentation will be given at the Ripton Community House on Route 125 and is sponsored by the Ripton Conservation Commission. 

Tom Rogers will be presenting at the event.  Rogers is a biologist who has worked on a variety of conservation projects, researching zebras in Kenya, golden-winged warblers in New York, sage grouse and bald eagles in Wyoming, and grizzly bears in Montana.  Tom currently works in outreach for the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department, connecting the public with fish and wildlife through writing, speaking, and photography. 

Through colorful photos and captivating stories, the audience will come away with a new understanding of how climate change is affecting wildlife.  Rogers will talk about what people can do to help conserve biodiversity in Vermont in the face of these new threats.

“From warmer, wetter winters to increasingly severe storms, wildlife faces a variety of challenges from a changing climate,” said Rogers.  “We’ll discuss how different species might continue to respond to many of these challenges and what conservationists are doing to address them.”

The talk is free and open to the public.

Introduction To Fishing With Planer Boards

This four hour seminar is a basic introduction to trolling while utilizing planer boards. Planer boards allow you to cover a large swath of water at various depths and speeds, by trolling multiple lure and bait presentations away from your vessel's motor noise. This is an excellent presentation technique for after ice out salmon, rainbows and lake trout, as well as summer time walleye, bass and northern pike.

Boards can be applied in both lakes and rivers. The seminar will cover the many aspects of the equipment used inlcuding vessel rigging, types of rods, reels, lines, lures and streamer fly presentations for targeted species.
